Western Digital RED WD30EFRX 3TB SATA III HDD Review
11 March 2014
Conclusion: Although we don't do power consumption tests on HDDs cause quite frankly it's very hard to be 100% on the spot with such results we did perform our usual temperature and noise level tests both of which showcase that Western Digital has indeed invested time and resources to optimize the Red line of HDDs specifically for NAS Server use.
Pros: - Build Quality (MTBF Of 1.000.000 Hours), - Good Performance Levels, - NASware 2.0 Technology (Low Temperatures/Noise Levels/Power Consumption/Error Protection/3D Active Balance Plus), - 24/7 Support & 3 Years Warranty, - Price

But the benchmarks in previous pages makes it obvious that this drive more of a 1up version of WD Green+ more cooler in Idle and Load even in close pc case condition and optimized for NAS, judging by the features its offering.

Pros: Three-year warranty, Good performance, Efficient performance, High data density

Pros: Vergleichsweise geringer Stromverbrauch, Gute Leistungen im Praxistest, Leise
